Hey guys,

the script below shows:

2009
JUNE
2010
JUNE
AUGUST

How can i get this link:
echo "<a href='?year={$row['year']}&month={$row['month']}'>{$row['month']}</a><br />"; // in case you wanted links

to go from:
http://www.runningprofiles.com/members/test.php?year=2010&month=AUGUST
to
http://www.runningprofiles.com/members/test.php?year=2010&month=8


$start = '2010-01-01'; // start of data to look at
$end = '2010-12-30'; // end of data to look at
$query = "SELECT DISTINCT YEAR(ev_dat) as year, UPPER(MONTHNAME(ev_dat)) as month FROM diary WHERE ev_dat  ORDER BY ev_dat";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die("Query failed: $query<br />Mysql error: " . mysql_error());

$current_year = '';
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)){
        // test for a change in the year
	if($current_year != $row['year']){
		echo $row['year'] . '<br />';
		$current_year = $row['year']; // remember the new year
	}
	echo "<a href='?year={$row['year']}&month={$row['month']}'>{$row['month']}</a><br />"; // in case you wanted links
	//echo "{$row['month']}<br />";
}

or in query use

$query = "SELECT DISTINCT YEAR(ev_dat) as year, Month(ev_dat) as month FROM diary WHERE ev_dat  ORDER BY ev_dat";

and in link use

echo "<a href='?year={$row['year']}&month={$row['month']}'>{UPPER($row['month'])}</a><br />"; // in case you wanted links

You might be able to use the strtotime function

echo date("m", strtotime("MAR"));
echo date("m", strtotime("MARCH"));

would both print 03
